  1. Certainly no middle ground on here, we need to guard against losing it, long way to go in getting the club playing squad good enough in thinking we can be a viable top flight club. He I imagine is impressed with the club in all aspects, stadium, training facilities, location, SL, and the desire. But it will take time, Nigel seems inspired, and at last we have a bright future, but let's just cool it and take it steady.
  2. As much as I find the Swedes comments as confusing ss the rest of you, we do need the occasional reality check to all this sycapanthic creepiness, that I am sure even Nigel finds unnerving. So tin pot.
  3. Yep did the same, and amassed enough points on paper to get into top 6. Trouble is I did similar prior to that awful losing run, hopefully though with Nige we can at least give it a go!
  4. Not wide literally you daft booger.
  5. Must have watched the highlights a dozen times, really dramatic, loved every bit, especially Nige celebrating with the coaches.
  6. This game? It's why we keep coming back for more, so exciting to be a City fan, after a nightmare few weeks. Well done all, especially Nige.
  7. They have a good C.V, I don't know what you are forming your opinions on, perhaps you can advise?
  8. You don't know that, you are just assuming, they have as many coaching qualifications as you have birthdays.
  9. That was never going to happen, initially the job is until May, and why would you sack the staff that have Intel on players?
  10. What amazes me is the lack of còment from the English camp, maybe because it's India and the volatile nature over there they are being quiet, however something needs to be done for the sake of Test Match cricket. Not everyone appreciates limited over cricket IPL, and now the ridiculous 100, 5 day tests will be a thing of the past unless we stamp out this cheating.
  11. Yes the idea is have a pitch that helps seamers, pace, initially, and then spin on about the third or fifth day, not the first session. That was never a test match pitch. Would have been better on coconut matting.
  12. Yes I believe they can happened to SA 2019. The site of sweeping the crease area into a dustpan was shocking. They have a wonderful stadium and a farcical pitch, shameless by India, needs investigating.
  13. Root a part time spinner, took five wickets. Truth is the pitch was a disgrace, should be officially called and and given demerit points. This was not a test pitch, the whole match lasted just four sessions.
  14. Probably, but he better run that past OTIB qualified coaches first, just leave it to the man to sort it out.
  15. No, but even you I and anyone else except him will know the order of things. How you can list what he intends to do is some insight.
  16. He has a hugely depleted squad to work with, I would think he will just get the remaining few to be the best they can be. Whilst making sure TM is kept away from first team duties.
  17. Nowhere near ready for promotion yet, we need to consolidate and build again with this manager on board if he can stay. Unfortunately due to recent past fasting around with weak coaches the club's progress has been halted, it took this recent collapse to drive it home, hopefully this was a watershed moment in the the club's history. All the ducks are in line for a push now, its been a long time coming.
  18. What cheap sh1t stirring journalism? Not the best way to get NP onside is it, especially with his history, suggest Mc Face gets a grip and grows up...so tin pot. And can we please stop going overboard just yet on NP, glad he's here but so fickle on here, witness the treatment the two coaches get, one day dumb and dumber the next hero status, toe curling stuff.
  19. Looks like it could be a seamers wicket, the selection was pretty cute.
  20. Concentrate on reporting first the next wicket, before it actually happens.
